FDC delegates conference set for November, party to name committee of elders
Senior members of the FDC party are pushing for an amendment of their constitution to create a committee of elders to give guidance on party affairs.

Senior members of the FDC party are pushing for an amendment of their constitution to create a committee of elders to give guidance on party affairs. 

A meeting of the party's leaders at their headquarters along Entebbe Road sought to get the views of members of the National Council regarding the proposed constitutional amendment.

The party president, Mugisha Muntu is alive to the old saying that a new broom sweeps clean but the old one knows all corners. He explains that the proposed committee is meant to give formerly active party members a platform through which they can participate by playing an advisory role

However, some youth leaders have voiced their disapproval of the amendment, arguing that it is a ploy by some leaders to serve their own interests.

Another section of FDC members have been claiming that the move is aimed at bringing back former leaders to run for top positions in the party-an allegation that Muntu has refuted.

The Friday meeting is the first meeting that the National Council members have held since the 2016 election which they disputed.

Mugisha Muntu told the members that they will emerge stronger if they remain united despite the challenges they are going through.

All the resolutions passed in the two day National Council meeting will be presented before the party's National Delegates Conference in November this year for approval.
